WTF!?..Auto Trany help :(

well it started yesterday afetr i was in reverse coming out of the crazy flex i was in, well i caned it and it moved and then dug really fast and slamed frame, well when it did it nocked it out of reverse somehow..just went to nuetral for a second.

then, this morning i got in and put it in reverse, it just stayed there without idleing back..i put it back in park tried it again and worked..i was like wtf..watever

then the next stopsign i was at, i started to roll away and then after going about 20 feet, vrooooom, it went into nuetral somehow again..i let off and then it seemed to catch or pop back in, and i was on my way...drove 20-30 miles to school, never happened again.

i was thinking maybe the linkage was messed up a bit or somethn..cause i know the trany is fine, although maybe somthn happened after i changed the fluid out 2 days ago...hmmm


any help would be awsome guys..

First off I'm going to assume you checked the fluid level?

It being full.. you might have bend the linkage..
if you get under the truck you can see it on the side of the transmission.
